Mobile Number Portability from Airtel

July 9, 2014  •  50 comments

Airtel MNP.  The process of porting Airtel mobile number to another Mobile operator is so simple & easy.
Just follow the below 4-steps simple process to port successfully:

  1. Know your Mobile Number Porting eligibility

    • Call the customer-care of the new Mobile operator you wish to port and understand their pre-requisites, documents required and terms & conditions. You can read these in their CAF (Customer Application Form) or ask their executive.
    • If you wish to port-out, fill the CAF & Porting Form. To fill these forms, you will need Unique Porting Code.
  2. Get UPC (Unique Porting Code)

    • Send SMS in below format to obtain UPC from Airtel:
      • PORT xxxxxxxxxx to 1900. Replace X’s with your 10-digit Airtel mobile number.
    • If you are from Jammu & Kashmir and a pre-paid subscriber, call 1900 to get the UPC.
    • Airtel will provide an auto generated 8 digits UPC; first two characters are alphabets & rest of six is numerical characters.
  3. Mobile Number Porting request

    • Submit the duly filled CAF & Porting Form to your new mobile operator. Below details are mandatory for MNP:
      • UPC (Unique Porting Code)
      • Documents required by your new Mobile Operator
      • Last bill paid receipt from Airtel, if you are a post-paid subscriber
    • Get new SIM card from your new Mobile operator.
    • Your new Mobile operator may charge Rs. 19/- as porting charges.
    • Note: You can cancel MNP request only within 24 hours from submitting the CAF & Porting Form. Read Airtel MNP FAQ’s.
  4. Activation of your ported Mobile number

    • If your porting request from Airtel is accepted, your new Mobile operator will confirm the same in 3-4 working days.
    • Your new Mobile operator will inform you the date & time of when the porting will happen, by SMS.
    • On 7th Working day, you will be ported to your new Mobile operator. If you are from Jammu & Kashmir, Assam & North East, it will be on 15th working day.
    • There will be about 2-4 hours service disruption during the porting process, mostly during night only.
    • Replace your current Airtel SIM card with new SIM card provided by your new Mobile operator.

    IF I HAVE A SECURITY DEPOSIT WITH THE EXISTING SUBSCRIBER, EVEN THEN DO I NEED TO CLEAR THE DUES, WHICH SHALL BE LESSER THAN THE SECURITY DEPOSIT. IF IN CASE I NEED TO CLEAR THE DUES THEN HOW WILL I GET MY SECURITY DEPOSIT ECT BACK AGAIN.

      Hello Tirthankar,

      You can not generate UPC code online, for your own security reason only.

      Hello Deepak,

      There is no other way than getting an Unique Port Code by sending SMS, with this UPC ypu will not be able to port to other networks.
      Refer to MNP Checklist.
      Try calling a Airtel executive to your place and he can help you with the process, if you are post-paid customer or planning to be.

    I sent sms STOP 0 to 1909. Airtel told me to reply with STOP 2298. On following the same, I was told, we are unable to process the request for your airtel mobile. please text the correct keyword or call 1909. whereas my words were correct.

    I have applied for porting my Airtel prepaid number to Vodafone prepaid number. For this I visited the Vodafone office, They asked me to pay Rs.225 for porting and told that out of 225 100 rs will be added to balance after porting. But I have heard the operator charges some nominal fees for porting. Is the amount of Rs 225 charged to me correct? Plz guide
